Taal Safdie and Ricardo Rabines are the husband-and-wife team who founded the renowned architectural firm of Safdie Rabines Architects. Their award winning work has been featured in numerous national and international publications. Recently completed projects include the Court of Sciences Student Center at UCLA, the Structural and Materials Engineering Building at UCSD, the Mercado del Barrio in San Diego, and the Harbor Drive Pedestrian Bridge in downtown San Diego. The office is currently working on La Jolla Country Day Student Center in La Jolla, The New El Centro Courthouse in El Centro, The Quad Student Housing Project in San Marcos, California, and pedestrian bridges in Doha Qatar.

One of their last projects was participating on the design team for ERC, designed by renowned Israeli architect Moshe Safdie. In this lecture they will discuss how Eleanor Roosevelt College reflects their design philosophy of being sensitive to the natural and built context of each project while responding to the specific needs of a university community.
